Apple Watch Series 3 with built-in cellular arrives on Reliance Jio


Apple is gearing up to launch the GPS + Cellular variant of its Watch Series 3 in India from Friday. The Apple Watch Series 3 LTE was available for pre-order on the respective telecom service providers' online websites.

As far as the pricing is concerned, the standard Apple Watch series 3 model costs Rs 39,080 and comes in an aluminium case with a sports band (or sports loop option). Powered by a new dual-core processor and wireless chip, the smartwatch also lets you stream music without needing to connect to your smartphone. Provided you have the right plan for your existing mobile service, the Apple Watch Series 3 LTE can be paired instantly from the app itself. Apple Watch Series 3 with cellular allows customers to stay connected, make calls, receive texts etc., even without an iPhone nearby. The Apple Watch Series 3 LTE also comes with Siri integration and standalone notifications support.

In Taiwan, five carriers are offering LTE support for the Apple Watch, including Taiwan Mobile, FarEsTone3, Telecom3, Chunghwa, and APT3. To help Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) customers get started, Jio is announcing a revolutionary JioEverywhereConnect™ service for all its prepaid and postpaid customers at no additional cost. With cellular, customers can go with just their Apple Watch and stay connected to the people and information they care about. For example, if you have your watch on your hand and head out for a run in the morning, the Watch, when out of the BT or Wi-Fi network range, will automatically switch to LTE mode and ensure you get your calls, SMS and other data services you hold on your Watch. It also boasts waterproof certification, meaning you can take the Apple Watch for a swim in the ocean. This essentially means that iOS users can use the Apple Watch as alternative to the iPhone. The third-generation Apple Watch is an incredible health and fitness companion with intelligent coaching features, water resistance 50 meters and a barometric altimeter that measures relative elevation.

The notable aspect of the Watch series 3 cellular is its in-built eSIM (embedded SIM), which is one-hundredth the size of a traditional SIM.

As for launch offers, Airtel customers are entitled to an additional cashback of Rs. 5,000 on payment through ICICI Credit EMI transactions.
